Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a professional photographer and genealogist (over 50 years), and long time historian of Coleman County, Texas (over 40 years). Over 20 years ago, I, along with my wife, Judia, and Vena Bob Gates, published all of the marked grave inscriptions in Coleman County, Texas in the 3 volume, "Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions." I also have these records online at

Judia and I both continue to visit cemeteries, but I do all the computer work. Judia is an artist and does not relate to computers ... she is soooo lucky!

I have welcomed FindAGrave to help carry on what myself, my wife and others are doing to keep local history information available and not forgotten. I began in the middle of March 2011 adding burials that have not been added for Coleman County.

I look forward to hearing from anyone interested in the cemeteries and history of Coleman County. Ralph Terry, Coleman, Texas.

I am in awe of all the pictures you have of the Griffith's. They are the line from Dad's mother's side. Melvina Griffith is my grandmother. I am wondering if you mid If I use the pictures of my family that you have? I will only use them in my genealogy postings.

Hello, I was wondering if it would be alright for me to use some of your photos in my Family Tree Maker, naming you as a courtesy?

Pinkney Cantrell Wise Hill Cem. Clever, Christian, Missouri.

He was son of Ephraim Cantrell and Tabitha Hicks of Warren County, Tennessee.

I have a Pinkney Cantrell in my direct line. He was born 1834 in Hickman Co, Tennessee and died about 1887 Texas. I think his wife was Mary J Stanfield, born in Humphrey Co. Tn. Maybe I'll find mine one day.

William P. Hinds
I saw the memorial that you made for William P. Hinds so you could connect him to his kids. He was married to Nancy C. Brooks. After William died, she remarried to Henry A. House, they are on the 1900 McCulloch Co., Tx. census. Nancy House was b. June 10, 1847 in Mississippi and d. May 10, 1933 in Floyd, Roosevelt Co., New Mexico, where she is buried. Arkansas County marriages indicate that Nancy C. Brooks married William P. Hinds Oct 19, 1895 in Sevier Co., Arkansas. I am not sure when/where Henry A. House died. I am researching the Brooks family, are you related? I have info to share. Thanks, you can reach me at

Mary & Pete Curry
Hi Ralph! Thank you SO much for the pictures of the headstones of Mary & Pete Curry. Mary was my Daddy's (Ira Louis "Sweetie" Smith) sister.

Did you know my aunt & uncle, Ed & Lillian Hector, or my cousin, Nancy Hector, who lived in Coleman?

I emailed you a while back about my Daddy graduating from Coleman High School in 1932. I have his diploma. The alumni list for that year says "Louise" Smith - can you please correct that to say "Louis"? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you again. I really appreciate your efforts!
